The best 59 Minutes we have spent!

So much time and effort goes into the code that we look at everyday to make all these features on websites work. Most of the time we take all these features for granted, except when it is bad, they you say, “What were they thinking”. Just recently we made a change that involved how we search for courses, by city and zip code.

I was never a fan of how our city search took so long to find the city I was looking for. I got use to typing in the city that I was looking for and then going to make a cup of coffee, get a doughnut, and when I got back….. It wasn’t that bad, but it was a tad slow.

So one day I got an IM that said, “Wow 59 minutes to run this little program that I just wrote, now try typing a city into the box.” Wow, like never before Sigma search was fast and fun; ok well maybe getting carried away with the fun part, but now I need to figure out another time to make my coffee!

Try it and you will see how fast the search box finds the city you are looking for, but before you do; grab a cup of coffee and a few doughnuts, because you will have many tee times to chose from.

Kudos to the brilliant mind that makes GolfSigma tick!


Much, much more to come….
